Webservices in PPM v7.1

Hi,

Our client would like to update the budget entity without having to manually update these values in PPM. Ideally, they would like to update the budget for a single budget, or a group of budgets in the system.

My thought was that we could give them a microsoft excel template to fill out and have them save it as a comma delimited file. They would then take this file and attach it to a request in PPM where a database function would run, parse through the file and update the necessary budgets.

I've recently heard about the possibility of using HP webservices to accomplish this task. Does anyone have documentation on how to set up and use webservices and some documentation we could use as examples.

Thanks,
Abdullah

Hi,

We solved a problem of updating of budgets in an automatic mode. Budgets were conducted in external system (Oracle) and daily special procedure updated values in PPM.

Vadim,

Thanks for the reply, I have thought of that solution but thought that webservices may provide a better solution.
